Isla Grant brings her guitar
I love performing because it is what I have always done and it is great to get a reaction from the audience when you sing live. Isla Grant
Scotland’s legendary singer-songwriter Isla Grant returns to Australia with her new album I’m a Survivor.
Country folk meets easy listening when her equally vocally gifted husband Al Grant and singer and multi-instrumentalist Glen Flynn join her on tour.
Grant said the reaction from the audience to her tour so far had been incredible.
“I love performing because it is what I have always done and it is great to get a reaction from the audience when you sing live,” she said.
“Hopefully the audience hears their favourite songs, plus new ones and some that I haven’t even recorded yet.”
The influence of Grant’s musical upbringing, including her father who was a piper, her singing mother, and fiddle-playing grandfather, is a key reason she is a household name in Ireland.
Since 2000, Grant has been bringing her meaningful catalogue of music, which she said was heavily inspired by her family and experiences, to Australia.
“I am looking forward to meeting up with old friends and making new ones along the way,” she said.
Grant has released 11 albums and created her own record label in 2008, and promises to cover all the greatest hits from over the years.
Tickets are available to the Albany Entertainment Centre concert on Saturday, October 14, at 7.30pm from ticketek.com.au for $69.
Shannon Smith Isla Grant will perform alongside her husband Al Grant and Glen Flynn.
